Featuring #CreativeCoin Posts - Week 80 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest


Read Before Making an Entry!!!

Lets change things up a little this week and find one entry from a tribe/tag (second featured post can be from any tag). To be more supportive of the tribes that are growing on Steem let's try to include one blogger who used the #CREATIVECOIN tag. Creative Coin (CCC on Steem-Engine) is for works that are Creative, so art or music as examples. Collectively our curators feature a ton of Creative Works each week, but we have never targeted a specific tag like this.

It's not required, but hopefully this will be a fun experience for everyone to check a tag maybe they don't normally look at. Either way you will still feature 2 blog posts, but if you want to join in on this "prompt" pick one from the Creative Coin tag.

The Pay It Forward Curation Contest is all about increasing exposure for undervalued high quality posts and increase the level of engagement on steemit. You can take part by entering the contest or just helping visit the entries and their featured posts. Everyone chooses their level of involvement and we appreciate the efforts of everyone who helps promote quality content on Steemit.

Make sure to check back to this post often and scroll to the end to see a list of this week's curation entries! This list is updated on a regular basis to help make it easy for you to visit the entries and help support the great content that has been curated.

How to Enter the Pay It Forward Curation Contest?

To enter the Curation Contest you will find 2 high quality blog posts written by reputation level 65 or lower steemians and then write a curation style blog post like this entry by @viking-ventures from week 16 which won a Judges Choice Award. The idea is to highlight both posts and why you thought they were high quality.

To be clear the Level 65 max is only for the bloggers who are featured, anyone may submit a curation entry.


  • Curation Style Post that highlights your 2 featured blog posts.
  • Link to the high quality undervalued (less then $2 earnings at time of featuring) blog posts in your curation post. Keep in mind that many will follow this link and upvote so pick a post that isn't close to payout!
  • Include a link to this contest in your entry post
  • The 2 bloggers you curate need to be rank 65 or below
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how we track everything
  • You must Upvote and Comment on the posts you are featuring

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ
We are looking for Quality Original Content and that post spells out what that means. If you are new please read it.

No less then 200 words of original written content. So a single photo is fine as long as there is 200 words with it. 200 words is about 12 lines of content.
** Art posts that show at least 3 steps of progression will not need to have 200 words of content, but still attempt to explain their art. Please use some common sense here.

Posts from Parley and dmania are not acceptable.

Entry #2

Just an FYI, when you get into drawings (art) type posts if the words are a little short, but they have multiple (3+) steps of progression along with the final piece they qualify. It's always nice when they talk about their art, but it's one of our exceptions to the word count.

16.10.2019 15:38

I understand. I found drawings but just a single one posted so that was of no help. Happy Wednesday. ๐Ÿ’•
